President Trump on Wednesday sought to distance himself from a Turkish military operation against Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria, days after he drew bipartisan backlash for announcing U.S. troops would vacate the area.

"This morning, Turkey, a NATO member, invaded Syria. The United States does not endorse this attack and has made it clear to Turkey that this operation is a bad idea," Trump said in a statement issued by the White House.


The president clarified that there are no American soldiers in the area where the Turkish incursion is taking place, and defended his efforts to pull U.S. forces out of the region, even as his strategy has faced relentless criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike.

WTF did he think was gonna happen???  He can't distance himself from this...his actions are why this is happening.

He owns whatever happens.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Here lies in honored glory an American soldier, known but to God

THE ESTABLISHMENT IS THE PROBLEM...NOT THE SOLUTION

You can only expect so much from the host of a cheesy tv show.

 :amen: and  :amen:  Reports are now coming in that Trump is threatening the 'economy' of Turkey. So what!  That is somehow going to resolve the issue of ISIS prisoners that were held and are now being set free?  What about the deaths of innocent Syrian civilians?  I want to know why he made this decision and who gave him this advice.  Obviously he didn't have a freakin' clue, and he ignored advice from those with a decade or more of experience over in the ME. 

I believe Graham is right, this will be one of the worst decisions of his presidency and may just cost him re-election. There is no turning back.  He made this decision in spite of being warned, yet the Narcissist in Chief failed to listen and a disaster is already on his hands.
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

Erdogan doesn't need us and he really doesn't need NATO (NATO doesn't need Turkey for that matter)...he's cast his lot with Russia and Iran.  Both of which...are propping up the Syrian government...which is why Turkey is allowed to attack into Syria to go after the Kurds without any fear of repercussions from Assad or his Russian and Iranian masters.

The economic threat is a hollow one and Erdogan knows it.
